After a friendly reception by Mathilde, we enjoyed a glass of Champagne on the sunny terasse before going to the dining room. Two kinds of menus and both excellent quality/price with efficient and quick service. Good selection of wines. Breakfast is plentiful and includes boiled eggs as well. This is a family run style hotel where you will certainly come... More

I've stayed here for 5 years each August en route from the ferry at Cherbourg to staying in Brittany. They have a family room for 5 of us and are really helpful about booking each year. We generally arrive rather late, just as the kitchen's about to close, but they've been great each year about us phoning through our order... More

I guess this is a chain hotel, but the parrot in the lobby, and the terrace / deck / fish pond out the back, with its great views of the cathedral in Coutances, give it a bit of charm. The staff are extremely warm and welcoming. We took the quadruple room which was perfect - an extra cot for the... More

Very attractive motel in pleasant grounds and with a fish pond and terrace. The room however is no more than 2-star basic. They need to modernise and improve the rooms. Restaurant was okay and the meal fine and good value for money. Breakfast was very much self-service and hardly saw anyone. Receptionists were welcoming and friendly. There is not much... More

We have just returned after visiting family in Normandy. The hotel was included as part of a package with Brittany ferries. The room was smart and very clean on arrival. Whilst the only English tv was CNN and BBC News this did not bother us. We were tired and slept in on the first day but a call to reception... More

Great location. Loved the fish in the pond! Plenty of free parking. Comfortable bed and good bathroom. Excellent dinner - 24 Euro for 3 courses. Good breakfast. Pleasant staff. No lift but not a problem. Would recommend.

This hotel outside town is fine for an overnight. It did not seem as updated as other chains, but has spacious rooms with very large bathrooms. The receptionist was pleasant and spoke some English so that was a help. The grounds are vey nice and the outside seating would be lovely in warm weather.

I was tired and needed an early night after a long drive, the rain was poring, I'd had enough. The Kyrid the night before was lovely, this alas was tired. The heating didn't work, the heated towel rail wasn't , there was no fluffy duvet just blankets. No flat screen tv but the old set did work fine, there was... More

Situated a couple of minutes outside town, hard by a Roman aqueduct and with nice views of the cathedral on its hilly perch, is the Cositel. Outside it is anything but cosy, it's harsh architectural heritage owes more to the M4 than to the comfy, simple clean establishment within. Our room was clean, quiet and overlooked the smallish garden with... More
